Rockclimbing article and misinformation

Disappointingly, much of the content in the below from Parks Victoria once again fuels the misinformation out there. 

It doesn’t give an informed account of what rock climbing is and provides nothing about the extensive history of the climbing community engaging with land managers.

The comments from PV unjustifiably paint the climbing community as reckless, damaging and unthoughtful. We have engaged PV previously on the misinformation they put out there, and they continue to misrepresent the situation. 

Cultural Heritage and its protection and preservation remain at the forefront of the work we do and we know that the climbing community supports this. PV is also well aware of this through the many years of work and during more recent concerns.

We will be addressing this continuing misinformation at our next planned meeting with PV. We will keep you updated.
